" If you want to achieve your goals, help others achieve theirs"
What is a Virtual Assistant?
When I first tell people I'm a virtual assistant, it is usually followed with a raised eyebrow. I guess because I've lived and breathed it for years, it is easy to assume that people know what a virtual assistant is.
A virtual assistant is someone who organises your chaos. We provide support where it is needed, and usually specialise in certain areas. So for me, this is administration, web management, marketing and graphic design. But that doesn't mean that this is all I can help with.
What can a Virtual Assistant help with?
- Are you fluent in writing reports but don't have an eye for detail?
- Don't know an email funnel from a status update?
- Have no idea what size images you should be posting to social media?
These are just a very small fraction of things that I can help you with.
If you've read my 'About me' page, you'll know that I want to be your cheerleader. I want to help you achieve your goals to take your business to that next level.
Business Support Services
Examples of my support services...
Administrative services are my bread and butter. This is what I have done throughout my whole career for nearly 20 years. The services that I list are the most common services that my clients use, but they are not limited.
Diary Management - I will keep you on track and in the know of all upcoming appointments.
Inbox Management - Never look at that cluttered inbox again. I will filter all of your VIP mail into a separate folder to make sure you are not disturbed by the junk.
Proofreading and Formatting - Don't let that important report be sent until you have had a second set of eyes look over it.
Invoicing - If you have clients who are ad hoc, it is hard to set up automatic invoicing. I can invoice clients on your behalf.
Marketing is a pivotal part of any business. And with so many different options, which is best for your business?
Let's discuss which option will work the best. Do you have an existing email list? If so, a marketing newsletter might be the best option. Or if your customers are active online, how about setting up Google and Facebook Ads?
I can also assist in creating engaging blog posts.
Social Media Management
Social media is without doubt one of the best ways to engage with your customers. But, with the constant need to post to Social Media channels to keep up with the ever changing algorithms, how are you expected to do it? The answer; outsource of course.
Gaining a social media presence takes time and perseverance, it doesn't happen overnight - no matter how many YouTube influencers tell you otherwise.
If you invest in your social media well, you will see the rewards.
I will personalise your social media management package to you, but you can expect:
- Regular posting to social media channel(s). Dependant upon the network, I will usually post twice a day with unique and engaging content.
- I will create eye catching graphics to get your brand to stand out.
- And I will engage with people in your local area/industry.
Branding & Graphic Design Services
To stand out, you need a consistent look and feel for your business. So how do you achieve this? Will powerful branding and graphics.

I will also create business stationery, such as business cards and letterheads if you are old school and prefer them to digital copies.
Do you have images that need editing? Or resizing for your website? No problem! I am proficient in Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign.
Do you have a website that needs updating but don't have the time? With my web management package I can take that pressure off your hands. I can help with most drag and drop software (such as wix and squarespace) and WordPress.
